The battery powered wearable A/C unit is worn on the belt. Pankaj Sinha, founder of MiClimate has licensed a Navy technology that is used in the field to keep soldiers comfortable in harsh conditions. The device is able to cool down temperatures by up to 18 degrees and heat up by 36 degrees. A smartphone app is used to control the MiClimate via Bluetooth. The weight of the gadget is 1.5lbs.
The first target customers are bikers. The company is holding grass root events demonstrating the MiClimate to bike clubs and the response is apparently very positive.
MiClimate has been featured this week on local ABC News. Watch the segment below. The MiClimate will be available through a crowdfunding campaign that is supposed to launch soon.
I still remember Sharper Image offering a wearable climate gadget. It was called the Personal Warm+Cool System. The device was based on the Peltier effect, which is one of the three thermoelectric effects. The MiClimate is also based on thermoelectric effects.
